What is the secret to happiness and success? You don’t need to fix yourself. But you definitely need to know yourself.
 
Research shows that self-awareness – knowing who we are and how others see us – is the foundation for high performance, smart choices, and lasting relationships. Without it, it’s impossible to master the skills needed to succeed in business and life: skills like emotional intelligence and empathy, influence and persuasion, communication and collaboration.
 
Most people instinctively know this. After all, it’s become almost a national pastime to point out when self-awareness is lacking in the people around us: politicians, coworkers and bosses, in-laws, the friend who posts endless selfies on social media. The problem is we rarely consider whether we, too, could stand to improve on this critical skill. And making matters worse, it’s woefully rare to get candid, honest feedback on how we come across, both at work and at home.
 
But it doesn’t have to be that way. Integrating hundreds of studies with her own research and work in the Fortune 500 world, organizational psychologist Tasha Eurich shows us what it takes to see ourselves more clearly: how to better understand what makes us tick on the inside, how to get others to tell us the honest truth about how they see us, and how to use this insight for greater success, confidence and self-acceptance.
 
Through stories of people who’ve made dramatic gains in self-awareness, she offers surprising secrets, techniques and strategies to help readers do the same - and therefore improve their work performance, career satisfaction, leadership potential, relationships, and more.

At a time when self-awareness matters more than ever, Insight is the essential playbook surviving and thriving in an unaware world. Download and start listening now!

And teach our kids to avoid being that person as well?  Eurich summarizes  the fascinating science about self insight, but--perhaps more importantly--she studies admirable individuals who are self-aware in a way that is applauded by their peers.  You'll benefit from knowing what they know.  Buy a copy for yourself and buy another to leave, anonymously, on your boss's desk.

  • "Self-knowledge is key to a happy life, but it can be hard to know ourselves. It’s easy to get distracted by the way we wish we were, or what we think we ought to be, or what others think we should be, until we lose sight of what’s actually true. In INSIGHT, Tasha Eurich shines a spotlight on people who have managed to gain insight into themselves, and she suggests groundbreaking strategies and tips for seeing ourselves clearly. This book is a powerful resource for anyone seeking to live a happier, more successful life. Gretchen Rubin, NY Times bestselling author of The Happiness Project, and Better Than Before

Very insightful indeed! Alan Mulally, retired CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes and The Ford Motor Company
